That is a great thought. I would propose that the Ipad would be fantastic alternative as well. I have seen them now doubling for a cash register in restaurants--maybe online testing is where they really take off given that most computers are not used to their full capability anyway. For manipulation of software maybe a keyboard and a mouse would be necessary but worth investigating. I would say it would be a very interesting topic.

All of this has got me thinking.

There have been many informative discussions, here and at conferences, regarding the pros and cons of unproctored on-line testing.

I wonder if now isn't a good time (albeit on another thread, since this is about computer-assisted testing) to begin dialog about testing on smart-phones, given how commonplace they have become, how many have web-capabilities, and how many people will probably want to use them as their principle text device.
